Asylum Chapel is licensed by Southwark Council for weddings and civil ceremonies.
The chapel is a Grade II listed building, built in 1826 by the Licensed Victualers Benevolent Institution for use by the residents of Caroline Gardens. These residents were made up of retired workers of the alcohol trade.
Bombed in WWII, the present use of the chapel is as a flexible space which can be hired for photographic events and film shoots, exhibitions, theatre, weddings and funerals.
The Asylum Chapel has a capacity and is suitable for up to 120 guests.
The Chapel is a ceremony only venue, so you are welcome to have a toast and some canapés after your service but no sit down meal, buffet or food trucks; your full reception would need to be taken offsite.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything! You were super helpful pre- wedding and during and helped everything go so smoothly - we really appreciated you keeping us on track as its such a whirlwind it's hard to remember things like speeches so that was brilliant but you were still super chilled so it worked for us perfectly.
